The current leading contender for next project is this Pineapple Star that was started in a workshop with Sharon Rexroad in 2003. This is one of the collection of projects that were begun in the late 1990s/early 2000s, then packed away while I was on the road for several years. It's time to get this one finished! I always liked the way the first group of blocks looked together, but wanted to take it further.
I have been playing with some design ideas for this in EQ7. The image below is one possibility, although I couldn't get the corners to work out right. I need to go through my leftover fabrics and see how many blocks I can make from what is there. I just discovered that most of the fabric at the center of the blocks got used to line a tote bag. I may have to remake that bag lining if I run out of the fabric for this quilt. Maybe there's an interior pocket that I could steal!
